Krishnan Guru-Murthy: The Reform UK leader Nigel Farage has been setting out his party’s pledges – including sweeping tax cuts, slashing immigration – and scrapping the UK’s Net Zero targets.

At their launch event in South Wales, the party refused to call it a manifesto – describing it as a contract instead.
